Ooh baby, don't you know I suffer?
Ooh baby, can you hear me moan?
You caught me under false pretenses
How long before you let me go?

Ooh
You set my soul alight
Ooh
You set my soul alight

Glaciers melting in the dead of night (ooh)
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive (you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the (you set my soul)
(Into the supermassive)

I thought I was a fool for no one
Ooh baby, I'm a fool for you
You're the queen of the superficial
And how long before you tell the truth?

Ooh
You set my soul alight
Ooh
You set my soul alight

Glaciers melting in the dead of night (ooh)
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive (you set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the (you set my soul)

Supermassive black hole
Supermassive black hole

Supermassive black hole

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the supermassive
Glaciers melting in the dead of night (ooh)

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the (you set my soul)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Muse's "Supermassive Black Hole" describe the toxic and intense attraction between two people who are not good for each other. The singer speaks directly to his lover, describing himself as suffering and moaning, which suggests that he's affected deeply by the relationship. Despite not being together under honest pretenses, the unspecified person has had a profound impact on the singer. The chorus suggests that the relationship ignites a fiery passion in the singer's soul that he can't resist.


The imagery of the glaciers melting in the dead of night and the superstars getting sucked into the supermassive black hole serves as a metaphor for how the singer is being consumed by the relationship. The black hole is a force so great that everything is sucked into it, even superstars. This may symbolize how the singer feels that his identity and individuality is being swallowed up by his partner.


Overall, "Supermassive Black Hole" is a song about a combustible love that's unsustainable and unhealthy. The singer is aware of the superficial nature of his lover, but he's still drawn to her like a moth to flame.
